Hero Arts Autumn & CAS CFC19 Challenge

Hero Arts CL499

You'd be forgiven for thinking I'd been living under a rock, because I didn't realise that there were SO MANY cardmaking challenge blogs out there! Ha ha! Well... I just came across another one, the CAS-sual Fridays or Clean & Simple Challenge Blog. So this week I'm going to play for the first time in the CAS challenge. The challenge theme is: CFC19: Use paper piecing on your Fall themed Clean And Simple project. Coincidentally, the Hero Arts Blog is also hosting an Autumn-themed Challenge, so naturally I decided to combine my project for both challenges.
Autumn-themed projects are not really a big thing here in Australia. In fact, it's not even autumn at the moment, as we are on the other side of the globe, we are actually just heading into spring. Nevertheless, I scoured my craft stash to see if I had any suitable supplies. In the end I found this lovely floral Hero Arts floral wreath stamp from the set CL499 Special Note of Thanks, not exactly an "autumnish" stamp, but I decided to try it in autumn colours. I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, and coloured with TRIA alcohol markers. I also stamped the little flower several times and cut them out in order to add the "paper-pieced" element to the project. A little bit of stickles to the center of each flower to finish.
